The London School of Economics student Karan Kataria’s allegations of him facing discrimination and harassment at LSE, has seeped into political discourse in India. Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar has written to LSE based on the allegations made by Kataria, The Hindustan Times reported.

His letter says that Kataria is a bright student and he is feeling unsafe on the campus due to recent incidents.

Kataria who hails from Haryana, is pursuing LLM from the University. He has alleged that he has been disqualified from the students’ union election without any substantial reason and he was discriminated against based on his race and beliefs. He has further accused without taking names that a smear campaign was run against him accusing him of being islamophobic, racist and homophobic.

Khattar raised the issue by saying that such incidents have had an impact on his family and Kataria’s mother is in mental distress.

Kataria thanked CM Khattar for supporting him and said he is a proud Hindu.
